Jamaica Gleaner - - SOCIALI -

THE VET­ERAN sports icon and 4x400 me­tre World champion, Sandie Richards, said ‘I do’ to long-time part­ner Bobby Pick­ett on Satur­day, Novem­ber 5, at the five-star re­sort, the Jewel Dunn’s River Re­sort & Spa, Ocho Rios, Ja­maica.

The cer­e­mony was an in­ti­mate and spec­tac­u­lar one – over­look­ing the ocean, that fea­tures a pic­tureper­fect scenery – in­ter­min­gled with in­stru­men­tal mu­sic by pop­u­lar Ja­maican mu­si­cians Cat Coore of Third World, sax­o­phon­ist Tony Greene and pi­anist Rob­bie Lyn. The cou­ple cel­e­brated with fam­ily and friends, some of whom are af­fil­i­ated with the sports fra­ter­nity and the po­lit­i­cal arena.

Sandie Richards, with hubby Bobby Pick­ett by her side, shared: “We feel re­ally blessed to be joined as hus­band and wife. Our spe­cial day was fated and ev­ery­thing we could have ever asked for.”

Love, they say, is so beau­ti­ful when you marry the one you truly love. Sandie’s hubby showed that he’s not only hand­some and a gen­tle­man on the out­side, but also on the in­side, as his heart­warm­ing speech to his wife at the al­tar brought tears to the eyes of some of the guests.

In his touch­ing speech, Bobby Pick­ett shared: “Sandie, I swear I will hon­our and re­spect you. I prom­ise to lis­ten to you with my ears and with my heart. I prom­ise to love you, no mat­ter how we change and grow to­gether. I vow to ful­fil your emo­tional needs, and I prom­ise to show you I love you
